Transportation & Logistics

Advising on transportation & logistics issues for the international movement of goods

Our market leading transportation & logistics team acts for global shipping and logistics companies and for traders and end users in every aspect of their domestic and international supply chain management.

We are one of only a handful of firms with experience of transportation & logistics matters across all our main practice areas. Given the ever growing need to support end to end logistics, we are particularly experienced in managing large complex, multi-jurisdictional, multi-modal transport matters.

Our reputation in both road and rail has flourished in recent years, as we handle the full range of work to support our clients in both these sectors. We have also worked on a number of significant infrastructure projects that combine several transportation elements to ensure that raw materials meet their trading hub.
